Modern mining works are being conducted at different environments and positive or negative new developments are brought into attention of the earth scientİsts or mining engineers. Careless geological works made at the past play an important role on the closure of ore dressing plants and unproductive mineral exploitation.It is a widely accepted idea that the mining cause environmental pollution however it is shown that this is not % 100 true.Uncomplete geotechnical works lead to the stripping problems and high costs in open pit mining; including the placer deposits. In this work, how much lithological and geological knowledge effect the ore production methods; that of ore paragenesis on the ore dressing plant designs, the effects of wrong density and grade estimations on the mining eceonomics and finally effects of cyanide leach problems arising from the gold beneficiation have been discussed with various examples given
